About the Book:
Book Number One in the Under Texas Stars series

A love like Lucy and Nate’s only comes along once in a blue moon . . .

Lucy Marsh's worldly resources are running out, but she's fiercely determined to care for her younger brother and sister. When she discovers that their father's recent death was no accident, Lucy is eager to leave town. She accepts a proxy marriage she believes will provide safe refuge. But trouble follows her to Texas where her new husband is surprised to suddenly have a wife and children to care for.

Nate Stanton always hoped he'd marry someday, but running the family ranch meant he had no time for romance. When his father deposits Lucy Marsh—a city girl—on his doorstep, with two siblings in the bargain, he expects ranch life will send her running on the first train out of town. But Lucy is made of tougher stuff than Nate imagined. When danger moves in, Nate finds he'd give anything to protect Lucy and the children he's grown to love. Even if it means giving up his ranch.
My Thoughts:

Lucy Marsh is a tiny thing with a whole lot of spunk. She's a take control type of gal, but then she has to be, as she is the sole person responsible for her two younger siblings. When she loses her job and her home, she accepts an unconventional offer that she is views as a gift from God.

Nate Stanton is a handsome and well-to-do rancher that all the girls have their eye on. Nate, on the other hand, doesn't have time or much interest in settling down. When he allows his father to take care of all his business affairs, he had no idea that Henry would marry a woman for Nate by proxy!

Lucy and Nate are both lovable characters with huge hearts. Each dealt with a situation they had no control over, and each took on the Lord's challenges with grace and commitment. This beautiful story held a wonderful lesson - to step back and let God have control.

Colleen Coble captured my attention with this novel. It was not only an inspirational romance, but it also contained mystery that keeps the reader wanting to turn those pages to see what happens next. I know I was really blindsided at the ending.

I enjoyed so enjoyed Colleen's writing style. So much, in fact, that I went and bought another of her books to read. If you want a great book to curl up with and get lost in, "Blue Moon Promise" is it!

Highly recommended!
